I am so sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He was my classmate for many years. This world will miss his gentle kindness and easy smile.

May god bless and keep him safe.

Ron was the best man at my wedding on June 22, 2073. As I knew him he was a wonder friend. After I married I returned over to Korea with my wife and was in the Army 6 years. And I never got to see him again although I have looked for him. I wish I could have talked to him one more time and really thank him for being my best man. I am still with the woman he helped me marry.

I'll miss you Ron and grieve for you.

My condolences to the Larrick family. I was friends and went to high school with Ron. Although we have not talked, I do remember that old Bonneville he used to drive and how well he could play the cornet. I really enjoyed the the flight of the bumblebee. I have nothing but fond memories of Ron. My prayers are with the Larrick family. One other thing, I never knew he lived in Portland, I lived near Seattle for 25 years, wish I knew back then, it would have been nice to visit.

I worked with Ron at Radian Research and he was a very talented and knowledgeable engineer and colleague who was not only great to work with but was also a good friend who will be missed. James Jolliffe

I worked with ron at Radian as well. He was a super-smart engineer, and was always willing to share his (vast) knowledge with others. He also managed a high-pressure project with grace and humor.

He was also a good friend in & out of the office, and I enjoyed listening to him play my piano. My wife and I will miss him greatly. My condolences to his family.
